Compared to debuts in the Women’s Bundesliga, Frankfurt Soccer players needed an increase in their first away game.
The start was successful. Eintracht Frankfurt football players entered the Bundesliga season last Sunday with a 2-1 win against SC Sand. An acceptable result for the first performance, which gave the players, who were already looking optimistic in the run-up, an extra bit of confidence. But even though coach Nico Arnautis did not want to immediately criticize: the first three points did not hide the fact that, despite dominance after a long start-up phase, the team did not gain enough chances in the new game system, so – It is called a diamond.
The problem is known from the previous season, in which Hessian, despite summer reinforcements, finished sixth and with only 30 after 33 points, the same place in the table a year earlier, when they were still under the umbrella of 1. . FFC Frankfurt. Furthermore, Willstatt’s early rivals, who finished tenth past, can hardly be used as a benchmark for a team with Champions League ambitions.
So it should be more interesting when the DFB Cup finalist visits SC Freiburg for away games (Sunday, 1pm). Recently tied in the ranking list neighbors Breisgaurinen were beaten 1:2 in their first game against TSG Hoffenheim. “You still showed a good game,” Arnautis insisted. “We will need a top performance,” said the coach to win at Moslestadion.
In the previous season, Frankfurt had won two out of three doubles against Freiburg, including 2–1 in the cup semi-final. When they see each other, Eintracht will have to do without injuries for a long time, alongside Tanja Pavolek, Geraldine Reutler and Lee Schneider, as well as new signing Nicole Anomie, who is suffering from a burn in her knee. Coaches will decide on the Leticia Santos assignment during final training this Saturday. Have been practicing with the Brazilian team for only two weeks. After attending the Olympics in Tokyo, where the South American finalists failed in the quarterfinals against gold medalists Canada, and a home holiday, the full-back was still in quarantine in August.
It is now clear when the new edition of the Frankfurt Women’s Cup competition will begin: on 26 September (3 pm), second division club 1. FC Nuremberg will fight for a place in the Round of 16. The start should also be successful at the Valznerweiher Sports Park.
